About Supported Employment
Founded in 1991, Status Employment was originally set up to help people with learning disabilities find paid employment and allow them to move away from the traditional day centre setting. Using a process called ‘supported employment’, the Employment Consultants were able to support people into paid work for the first time in their lives.
Using a method called ‘Individual Placement and Support’ (IPS), Status are now also able to assist people with mental health problems. The essence of IPS is that an Employment Consultant gets to know each individual. Together they identify the most appropriate jobs for that person, search for a job and then the Employment Consultant provides as much support as is needed to ensure that the person settles into the job and is able to carry out the job to the standards expected.
